CNN’s Anderson Cooper devoted his satirical segment “The Ridiculist” to Donald Trump on Wednesday, lampooning the president for claiming that news anchors sent him letters praising a bipartisan meeting Tuesday on immigration. “Anchors sent us letters saying that was one of the greatest meetings they’ve ever witnessed,” Trump said at the first Cabinet meeting of the year. “They probably wished they didn’t send us those letters of congratulations, but it was good.
The governor of Missouri became embroiled in a sex scandal this week, one involving an extramarital affair and claims of blackmail. In a joint statement issued on Wednesday, Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R) and his wife Sheena admitted that he engaged in an affair before he was elected to office. The statement was released on the heels of an explosive local news report that alleged the governor had threatened to blackmail the woman involved in the affair.
You remember the ’80s: shoulder pads, big hair and a whole lot of pesto. TV dinners and questionable casseroles were on the outs, making way for new ingredients (sun-dried tomatoes! goat cheese!) and lots of big, crunchy salads. Books like The Silver Palate (think: Barefoot Contessa of the ’80s) and The Moosewood Café Cookbook (everyone’s guide to their newfound vegetarianism) were all the rage.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
